Rick Ross assassination attempt might have links to Gangster Disciples
Jan-30-2013 427 0


There is no shortage of suspects in Monday's assassination attempt on well-known rap star Rick Ross. And they all lead back to Chicago.

Ross survived a shooting ambush in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Monday morning.

The worst kept secret in the rap world has been a dispute between Ross and the Chicago-based Gangster Disciples. Ross was apparently targeted by gang leaders after he used some of their signs, symbols and logos without paying them the required fees.

Over the past few months, gang members have posted video death threats against the rapper on YouTube. Monday, a hit squad opened fire on Ross in South Florida.

There was a spray of gunfire just before daybreak on the silver Rolls Royce being driven by rapper Rick Ross, stage name for William L. Roberts.

"Nine or 10 shots, rapid fire," said a witness. "AK-47 or pretty large rifle, it was definitely a rifle."

Fort Lauderdale police tell the I-Team that they cannot confirm nor dismiss whether the allege threats to the rap star are legitimate but that detectives are examining the forensic evidence.

Despite all the bullets, rapper Ross, celebrating his 37th birthday Monday, was not hurt and neither was his girlfriend in the car, which crashed into an apartment.

Videos claiming to have been posted by Gangster Disciple members in cities across the U.S. all say that the rapper needs to pay the gang or he will be killed.

Authorities in South Florida say the motive for the attack is unclear.

Authorities in Las Vegas say entertainer Flavor Flav has been arrested on allegations of driving under the influence, speeding, possessing less than an ounce of marijuana and having an open container of alcohol in the 2005 black BMW he was driving.

Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Loy Hixson said Thursday that the 56-year-old entertainer was pulled over as he entered Interstate 15 southwest of McCarran International Airport around 12:30 a.m. for going 73 mph (117 kph) in a 45 mph (72 kph) zone.

Hixson says Flavor Flav also had a suspended driver's license and registration. He faces several misdemeanor charges.

Flavor Flav's real name is William Jonathan Drayton Jr. His Las Vegas attorney said she would call back with a comment later after The Associated Press informed her of her client's arrest.

An up-and-coming rapper from Queens was killed in a drive-by shooting in his home borough early Sunday, the NYPD said.

Lionel Pickens, 31, who goes by the stage name Chinx, was shot multiple times, and a 27-year-old passenger in his Porsche was hit twice in the back, at about 4 a.m. at the intersection of Queens Boulevard and 84th Drive in Briarwood, cops said.

The shooter sped off while the rapper's silver Porsche Panamera 4 rolled for about a block and came to a stop in front of a Dunkin' Donuts. At least seven bullet holes pierced the front and rear driver-side windows.

Chinx was a member of French Montana's Coke Boys group and record label. He also issued multiple independently produced mixtapes.

An employee at the Dunkin' Donuts said Pickens looked lifeless in the driver seat when cops arrived at the scene. "The police came and they opened up the door," said Bibekanada Das, who was working in the kitchen when the shooting occurred. "All you could see was the guy laid out in the seat."

"He was very good," said Luis Lopez, 37, manager of the club. "He was here with four or five guys. Then he left. He didn’t fight with anyone."

"I got the news by the (club) promoter. To be in my establishment and then … It’s crazy, man. It’s really crazy. I was shocked to hear the news,” Lopez added.

In 2009, Pickens released his first solo album, "Hurry Up & Die Vol. 1: Get Ya Casket On." He was a member of French Montana's Coke Boys group and record label.

His label and managers posted a picture of the rapper on Instagram and mourned his death.

“It is with a heavy heart that the Legion Media Group and 4 Kings Management announce the passing of Lionel ‘Chinx’ Pickens this morning,” an Instagram post by the Legion Media Group said. “Chinx’s dedication, humor and vision will always be remembered.

Pickens friends were struggling to understand what happened.

"He was a young kid that I watched grow up around the way. It hurts," said Vasco Alder, 35, a childhood friend of the hip hop performer.

Pickens began rapping when he was in junior high in Far Rockaway.

But his career was stalled when he did four years in prison after he pleaded guilty to robbing an auto body shop and selling drugs. Upon his release, he developed ties to French Montana, the on-again off-again boyfriend of Khloe Kardashian.

Several hours after Chinx’s death, the reality star posted a collage of photos with the rapper on Instagram. “We’ve only known each other a short time but it was the best time, full of memories that I will cherish forever!” she said.

"Another brother gone without reaching his full potential," Rob Kardashian said in one of two tweets. His other Twitter post included a photo of him with Chinx.

After the killing, an Instagram account with the tagline “gang worldwide” bragged about gunning down the rapper. The Teamshabbaofficial Instagram account posted pictures of guns and a photo of the bullet ridden Porsche.

But the Teamshabbaofficial page appears to be based in Sweden, according to a report.

Blues giant B.B. King, whose six-string genius shaped generations of guitar gods from around the globe, died at home Thursday in Las Vegas, his lawyer said. He was 89.

The Mississippi Delta native, born Riley B. King, died peacefully in his sleep at 9:40 p.m., said attorney Brent Bryson. Bryson said funeral arrangements are underway.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg confirmed the death.

A cause of death was not immediately released, but the legend who was known as the “Ambassador of the Blues” across seven peerless decades of singing, songwriting, recording and performing suffered from diabetes and had been in hospice care.

King's eldest surviving daughter Shirley King of the Chicago area said she was upset that she did not have a chance to see her father before his death.

A list of his musical acolytes reads like a litany of the world’s most renowned guitarists: Mike Bloomfield, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Larry Carlton, Jimi Hendrix, the Edge, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana, Derek Trucks, Joe Walsh.


Blues giant B.B. King, whose six-string genius shaped generations of guitar gods from around the globe, died at 89 in Las Vegas, announced his attorney early Friday.

The self-effacing King was ranked as the No. 6 guitarist of all time on a 2011 Rolling Stone list — nestled neatly between Jeff Beck and Chuck Berry.

With his famous Gibson guitar “Lucille,” King earned 15 Grammys and kept the blues alive with relentless touring that continued into his 80s.

In 1956, King and his band performed 342 one-night stands — taking off just 14 days in the leap year. In 2012, King played more than 200 live dates — including a gig at the White House.

King famously said playing the guitar was like sharing an intimate conversation with a woman. He christened his guitar after a nightclub fire started by a fight over a woman — named Lucille.

King’s unique style featured stinging single-note solos, with an instantly recognizable sound ringing from his hollow-body guitar. He was inducted into the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame in 1984, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three years later. King opened for the Rolling Stones in 1969, and jammed with U2 two decades later.

At the turn of the century, he collaborated with Clapton on the album “Riding With the King.”

His signature hit single, “The Thrill Is Gone,” was released in 1969 and reached No. 3 on the R&B charts and No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The son of a segregated South once said his musical message was meant for all races, colors and creeds: “Red, white, black, brown or yellow, rich or poor, we all have the blues.”

King was born on a cotton plantation outside Indianola, Miss., where he played his guitar on street corners for spare change as a child. Life in the rural South was unsparing: King didn’t see a light bulb until he was 16.

When not strumming or singing gospel, King absorbed the musical messages of bluesmen like T-Bone Walker and Sonny Boy Williamson. Walker’s landmark “Stormy Monday” was King’s first serious taste of the blues.

The Mississippi Delta native, born Riley B. King, became known as the “Ambassador of the Blues” across seven peerless decades of singing, songwriting, recording and performing.


His decision to choose a musical career was simple: “I made $22.50 on a plantation driving a tractor all week. Playing guitar on a Saturday night I made $25.”

He hitchhiked in 1947 to Memphis, where he landed on local radio stations and became a fixture on the club scene. The singer-guitarist was billed as the Beale Street Blues Boy — later shortened to B.B. King.

His first hit, “Three O’Clock Blues,” was recorded in a Memphis YMCA and spent five weeks at No. 1 on the R&B charts in 1952. The song offered the first widespread exposure for King. His live shows highlighted King’s most famous musical quirk: He never played guitar and sang simultaneously, focusing full attention on either vocals or music.

The stage veteran later recorded a pair of classic live albums before two very different Illinois audiences: “Live at the Regal” in 1965 and “Live at Cook County Jail” in 1971.

In between, he opened for the Rolling Stones on their 1969 tour — the same year that he first appeared on the “Tonight” show.

In 1985, he memorably performed the title track for the movie “Into The Night,” starring Jeff Goldblum, David Bowie, Dan Aykroyd and Michelle Pfeiffer.

King was also featured in the U2 documentary “Rattle and Hum” in 1988, playing with the band on their song “When Love Comes to Town.” But his favorite singer was always Frank Sinatra.

King was also a licensed pilot. He was married twice, with the second ceremony officiated by the Rev. C.L. Franklin — father of Aretha.

The guitarist’s name also adorned a half-dozen nightclubs, including one on Beale St. in Memphis and another on 42nd St. in Times Square.

A music producer who once worked with Whitney Houston and Kenny G was sentenced to 10 years in prison Wednesday for a multimillion-dollar scheme that swindled dozens of investors around the country.

Charles Huggins, 69, was sentenced by Manhattan Federal Court Judge Sidney Stein on fraud and conspiracy charges.

Huggins, who is the ex-husband of R&B singer Melba Moore, stole millions of dollars from his victims while assuring them their money was being invested in gold and diamonds from Africa, prosecutors said.

Instead, he used the proceeds to finance his lavish lifestyle, including a Mercedes-Benz, his swank Manhattan apartment with $7,200 rent and meals at high-end restaurants, authorities said.

Some of the investors’ money went to pay other investors in an old-fashioned Ponzi scheme, prosecutors charged.

Altogether, investors lost more than $8 million, prosecutors said.

Legendary Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith was among the victims, according to court papers.

Huggins was also ordered to pay $2.3 million in forfeiture and restitution.

“This fraud was extensive, brazen, and sophisticated,” Stein told Huggins, noting he “lived a very luxurious lifestyle on the money of presumably hardworking individuals ... people who were completely innocent.”

Hip-hop musician Chris Brown is a suspect in an attack that happened early Monday morning at the Palms Casino Resort, according to police.

Las Vegas Metro police said they were called to Sunrise Hospital at 3:42 a.m. to investigate someone who had been beaten.

According to investigators, the victim said he was playing a game of basketball at the off-Strip resort when he got into an argument. The argument escalated, and he was punched by Brown and another man with Brown.

Investigators said the victim suffered injuries that were not life-threatening, and took himself to the hospital.

Brown was not available to speak to them when officers arrived at the casino, investigators said.

Police said Brown has the option of signing a citation issued for a battery charge, or his case could be given to the Clark County District Attorney for prosecution.

Bronx Family Court Judge Peter Passidomo signed a warrant for Dash's arrest on April 20 because he owes $51,000 to the mother of an 11 year old son who goes by the nickname Lucky.

A second warrant was signed last week in Manhattan by Supreme Court Justice Matthew Cooper. There, the judge said the only way Dash can stay out of jail is to pay the $342,000 that he owes to his ex-wife, designer Rachel Roy, for mortgage payments and the financial support of their daughters, Tallulah and Ava.

The warrants infuriated Dash who from an undisclosed perch in Los Angeles starting attacking the mothers on Instagram and insisting that he is a good father to all his children.

Of Lucky's unidentified mom, who Dash calls Cindy, Dash asked online: "How can she hurt her child for money? ... Something doesn't smell right.... I've been getting extorted by my baby moms."

Dash said that he recently gave Lucky's mother more than $100,000 to buy a house so his son could live in a better place and that was outside the required child support. "Why would a mom rob her son of a father and her son's money and his ability to make money ... does that add up?"

Dash also launched a verbal assault on Roy who recently got the California courts to give her full custody of her girls and a three-year protective order to keep Dash away from her.

Dash said it was a "distasteful, tacky thing" of Roy to take "my children's money to buy shoes and car services for a company (she) didn't put a dollar for and not letting me see my kids because I'm not alright with it."

His teenage daughter, Ava, responded on line, saying simply "are you serious dad?" and "please stop."

Dash then blocked Ava from his Instagram page saying that her mother used Ava's phone to post the comments under her daughter's name.

Attorney Donnell Suares who represents both Roy in Manhattan and Lucky's mother in the Bronx said "it is unfortunate that Damon Dash has focused on denigrating the mothers of his children on social media.

"For nearly a year, these women have been raising their children without the benefit of financial support from Mr. Dash. Mr. Dash should comply with the courts' orders and support his children," Suares said.

Dash is known to have four children: Ava, 15, Tellulah, 6, Lucky, 11, and Damon Jr. aka Boggie, 23.

Boggie's mother, Linda Williams, sued Dash for filing false harassment charges with the police, resulting in her getting arrested. Last year, a jury awarded Williams, 50, of Huntington $50,000 in damages.

Tired of waiting for payment, Williams came back to court this year and got a judgement against a settlement that Dash made with producer Lee Daniels. Dash had sued Daniels for $2 million, saying he had invested in Daniels' early movies and was entitled to be compensated. The terms of that settlement were not disclosed.

Dash, 43, is a former business partner of Jay Z in Roc-a-Fella Records until 2005 when Jay-Z bought out Dash for millions.

Soul singer Ben E. King, best known for his 1961 hit ‘Stand By Me,’ has died. He was 76 years old.

The North Carolina-born R&B legend died Thursday of natural causes, his agent told the Telegraph.

King rose to fame in the 1950s as a member of the Drifters. The soul group produced hits such as “There Goes My Baby” and “Save The Last Dance For Me.”

He later broke away and started his solo act. His 1961 hit “Stand By Me” quickly topped the U.S. charts. It became a top-10 hit again in 1986, when it was used in the film of the same name starring River Phoenix.

Fellow singer Gary U.S. Bonds paid tribute to the singer on Facebook early Friday morning.

“With an extremely heavy heart, I must say goodbye to one of the sweetest, gentlest and gifted souls that I have had the privilege of knowing and calling my friend for more than 50 years — Mr. Ben E. King,” he wrote. “Thank you Ben E. for your friendship and the wonderful legacy you leave behind.”

“Real Housewives” cast member Phaedra Parks will get her day in court, a judge ruled Monday.

Parks is suing author Angela Stanton who claimed that she and Parks were involved in various criminal schemes.

Superior Court Judge Carla Brown on Monday dismissed an attempt by Stanton to get Parks’ libel lawsuit thrown out.

Parks filed the suit in 2012 following the online publication of a series of articles and an e-book. The lawsuit quotes the e-book titled “Lies Of A Real Housewife,” and articles posted on vibe.com in which Stanton claims she and Parks were involved in various criminal activities including forgery and a “federal racketeering scheme” aimed at stealing luxury cars.

Stanton’s attorney James Radford argued in Gwinnett Superior Court that Parks had forfeited her right to sue because she stonewalled when she was deposed about whether she was engaged in criminal schemes with Stanton as Stanton alleges in the e-book.

Parks’ lawyer Paul Andrew argued that his client had answered proper questions in the discovery process of her 2012 lawsuit against Stanton, which deserved to go forward.

He said his client only refused to answer questions about her husband Apollo Nida’s alleged criminal activity, which the lawyer considered improper.

Parks is a respected member of the community and a lawyer whose denial of wrongdoing carries more credibility than any claim by Stanton, a convicted felon, Andrew said.

Radford showed no surprise the judge ruled for the case to continue.

“We’ll just take our case to court, he said.

Bobby Brown said his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown is "awake" nearly three months after being found face down and unresponsive in a bathtub.

"Bobbi is awake," the 46-year-old singer said in a video posted on TMZ from a Maze featuring Frankie Beverly concert at the Verizon Theatre in Dallas, TX for which he was a special guest on Saturday.

With those three simple words, the crowd went wild as the 22-year-old's condition has been touch-and-go since she was discovered in her Atlanta home on January 31 by her partner, Nick Gordon, and has been in a coma since.

However, Brown also said, "She's watching me," which could indicate that his daughter, the only child of the late Whitney Houston, isn't out of the clear yet.

"We've moved her to a place for rehabilitation," Bobbi Kristina's 81-year-old grandmother, Cissy Houston, told New York radio station WBLS 107.5 FM on March 25about the undisclosed facility. "And you know, still not a great deal of hope. (We're) still praying."

Whitney passed away under grimly similar circumstances in 2012 when she was found dead in a Hollywood bathtub of a cocaine overdose. A police investigation discovered drugs present in Bobbi Kristina's home and that pal Maxwell Lomas, who had done time in jail on drug possession charges and was released shortly before the incident, was present at the time she was found by Gordon.

Just over a week ago was the last time Brown opened up about his daughter on stage, but he didn't seem so positive.

"I dunno what the hell I am going through right now," he said on April 11 at a soul-food festival in downtown Los Angeles, "but I am giving it to God and letting him deal with it."

A rep for Brown has yet to respond to the Daily News' request for comment.
